Yeah. Hooray for us. We're going to get walloped full in the face with this crap. Flooding will not be an issue for the most part- at least at home, but the wind and rain itself will beat everything into a mushy pulp. Goodbye veggie garden. So long power/ internet. On the up side, we have enough battery power to run everything (literally) for a solid week- phones, handheld lights, and maybe even a tablet. We have food, we can get food. Me... I'll not be so lucky, thanks to the food allergies...

Normally, zombie dolphins will fight sharknados. They're natural enemies, but you just described the perfect storm. If that happens, there'll be no stopping it! Good lord ... that might spill out onto the plains and cause ... jackalopes!

It'll be interesting to see which Outer Banks islands the ocean reclaims. Hurricanes have a big influence on their shape, and lifespan (see Hog Island, NY for reference)

If memory serves, quite a few inlets and small coves/bays along the mainland Carolinas coast were formed due to hurricanes, too.

Coastlines and tiny sand heaps are Mother Nature's canvas -- she will create them and destroy them as she sees fit. Growing up in FL, that really is the best way to look at 'canes. Anything else is a downhill battle of wishful thinking. Respect Nature's immense force, and get the hell out of her way when she comes screaming through.

Honestly, this one is running against the grain. Normally, hurricanes starting where this one is at tend to curve out away from everything, but there is a strong blocking high pressure system in place right now.

The odds that it will stay in place for all three of those storms is very, very low. So the other two systems should behave like most hurricanes developing in this area normally do.

It has been raining heavy for the past 24 hours. Not from the hurricane of course but very heavy rain and the ground is saturated. The Governor has declared a state of emergency already. That's just a ready call as we watch.
The trouble is that Norfolk has an antiquated sewer system and the city floods every time there is a heavy rain.
The tunnels flood and the area is surrounded by water. Access is all over water either the bay or the James or Elizabeth rivers. By either tunnel or bridge. Bridges get closed during hurricanes and tunnels flood.
To the west of the coast the rain falls on the mountains and floods the valleys and piedmont. Cities far away from the coast get flooded when the rivers become swollen with rain water and in some cases water pushed inland by the storm.
A city to the west of me was flooded after hurricane Floyd I think in 97 or about then and parts of the city were under water to the roof tops of two story buildings.
I am planning on it going out to sea. Or just being a September tree cleaner. Thats a storm that just knocks the dead and weak branches out of a tree but leave roofs and awnings in place. Interesting to watch.
Theres this low heavy cloud and a sick yellow light that occur and the thunder is low and rumbling like it comes from its stomach. Then the rain and wind start up and build until sometimes the rain is going sideways and stinging your face. I often go outside during a storm but there have been a few that frightened me enough to keep me indoors. So far we have never evacuated nor have we ever been under any evacuation orders. And I have a river that is about eight hundred feet from my door. It has risen to within two hundred feet.
I haven't looked at NOAA yet.

To be serious, though that's hardly possible sometimes, around here, a mega hurricane hit can go a long ways inland, a couple hundred miles or more, throwing trees all over the place. Hurricane Hugo, I forget what year that was, but I once saw a TV documentary showing a lot of damage to the inland Carolinas, whole forests destroyed, so you can imagine what it was like on the coasts. Even those that escape damages are often not prepared for long power outages, that could go on for days, even weeks. Downed trees all over the place can put whole power grids out of service, a lot of the outage due to having to do repairs, perhaps not that close to where you live, but your good cable wires remaining off, dead, until the bad cables are repaired, and the first priority is to kill live wires, which means killing chunks of the grid. You need to at least be thinking able to live days, without power, well inland.

i hope so, but windy.com says otherwise, it does predict the other two to drift away but not this one using ECMWF model

Here in Virginia too. Since Friday night. and it rained last Wednesday real heavy too. Its been soggy for weeks.

If we get heavy winds it can take down a lot of trees which are still full of their leaves . the ground is so wet the roots let go and the tree just falls over. I saw hundred year old oak trees go roots skyward. Very sad.

We are a hundred and 10-20 miles inland along the lower border. Hugo tore this place severely, lots of pole barns, regular barns and roofs took a beating. We lost some sizeable trees, and areas of trees. The Pee Dee river was about 35 feet above flood level. There are stains still on the Highway 74 bridge just outside Rockingham, that I have seen.

Curious, I looked at a couple links about Hugo, and one mentioned Charlotte, NC hit hard by Hugo, which is way inland on the map, and Hugo actually hit land on the SC coast, really worked its way inland, in devastating way, though Hugo was one of those monster hurricanes. Still, you can't be complacent about being inland.

Anybody that thinks they may be in harms way can get good information here, tracking maps and other information, anytime you wish:

National Hurricane Center

Interesting, it seems there are Isaac and Helene, brewing behind Florence.

I gotta say, here in DC it has been miserable with muggy heat and heat indexes over 100 degrees for a few weeks now, so this sudden shift to almost chilly air and breeze is pretty sweet, even if it is the harbinger of certain doom.
